Holiday Celebration in Puerto Rico

November 6, 2023

We’re sure you have heard that the longest holidays are in Puerto Rico, and we are proud to confirm that this is in fact, true. This year, head to Puerto Rico for the Holiday celebration you truly deserve. We are talking great music, good food and non-stop grinning from all the fun you will have. Christmas in Puerto Rico is a unique event, known for its Parrandas, think of them as upbeat caroling where friends and family gather late in the evening to enjoy traditional Christmas music, food and drinks. It all starts with Thanksgiving, and continues up until mid-January. The Holidays are not over in Puerto Rico until the Tres Reyes Magos arrive and the FIESTAS DE LA CALLE SAN SEBASTIÁN conclude in mid-January.

While staying at the Condado Ocean Club, enjoy the festive atmosphere that Puerto Rico transmits to everyone on island during this special time. Be sure to check out our Holiday Activities Schedule to make your plans with us and don’t miss any of the fun!


Old San Juan always starts the celebration early; the city will soon be joyfully decorated and lights will shine bright. Old San Juan is just a short car drive, bike ride, or 20-minute walk away from Condado. The city is a great combination of old and new city life for you to expand your authentic experience.  

While on island, dive into our culture not only by exploring the five-century historic Old San Juan, but also be adventurous and take a mountain-side trip to Guavate and try Puerto Rico’s famous slow-roasted pork, while enjoying the best christmas food, and live music. There is always something to celebrate in Puerto Rico, VIEW THIS CALENDAR to learn about all events happening on the Island.

You can make your reservation for either of our two sittings at 6:30pm or 8:30pm, and enjoy live entertainment while you delight on exquisite Puerto Rican and international fusion 3-course prix-fixe menu.
